Highly readable, often surprising and always enjoyable, 'A Little History of Australia' tells the whole story of this Great Southern Land, from its Aboriginal origins to the present day, including:

• Discovery by European navigators who claimed the land as their own – even though it was already inhabited

• The First Fleet, convict settlements, the gold rushes, and turn-of-the-century questions about whether Australia could be a perfect society

• The birth-pangs of a federated nation, and the experiences of Australians in the world's wars

• Continuing tension over links with Britain, massive post-war immigration, successes and problems of the twentieth century, and the celebration of a distinctly Australian way of life

It's all here, in one cute, compact and vividly written mini-history.
